Every week we take a peek inside the lunches of the luckiest kids in Brooklyn. Read on, suppress your jealousy, and get a little brown bag inspiration.

Everyone needs a few survival strategies for getting through the lunch routine. When I'm short on time and supplies, one of mine is to assemble a few whole foods that I can feel good about feeding to my kids. I wanted to share a couple of these no-frills lunches; they are nothing I'm proud of but they got the job done.

No Frills Lunch #1: blanched Romanesco broccoli, smoked ham, cubes of Manchego cheese, dried cherries, chocolates, and Seckel pears

No Frills Lunch #2: smoked ham, mustard-y coleslaw, roasted beets, wheat bread, apples

How very sad that you're not proud of these. They're both delightful lunches. Simple components, thoughtfully combined = an excellent meal, anytime, anywhere, no matter how long it took (or didn't take) to put it together. ;o)
